The hospitalist faculty are available
throughout the day to oversee care, to be directly accountable for ward
activities, to interact with the nursing and ancillary staff, and to
conduct quality improvement meetings. These doctors facilitate
admissions, keep the primary care doctor apprised of the progress the
child is making and are available to answer parents' questions.
Hospitalists provide care for children with common medical problems who
need to be hospitalized.
